2. choosing a boy

i don't understand what the odds of something would be

    First, find the total amount of students in the class. 10+15=25.
    There are 10 girls so the odds of choosing a girl are 10/25, reduced to be 2/5
    There are 15 boys so the odds of choosing a boy are 15/25, reduced to be 3/5

    The answers are
    1. 2/5, or 2 out of 5
    2. 3/5, or 3 out of 5

    It is strange that i am in 7th grade and I know this and you do not....

    Choosing a girl at random is more likely to happen because there are 5 more girls than boys.
